Hi. I am using Material Studio (MS) version 4.3 (yeah I know it's old but that's all I've got) and I have been trying to calculate this energy of a specific compound (N,N-dimethylformamide). I've learned that there are 3 ways on how to calculate energy using MS; Forcite, Dmol3 and Minimizer functions. However, using Forcite and Minimizer gives me a positive total energy for the compound, which is kind of weird because a positive energy means that that the compound is unstable, am I right? So I tried using Dmol3, it gives me negative energy (yeay!), and afterwards I tried minimizing this same compound using Minimizer, then bamm, it becomes positive again. My question is, why would this happen? Which function is actually better for calculating energies / geometry optimization? Or is there any chemistry-related explanations about all this? Thanks.
